Die Schachtel

ARCHETTI, LUIGI - Null II/Null III

Null II and Null III are the second and third part of Italian/Swiss composer Luigi Archettis massive electronic work on the theme of nothing" ("Null"), whose first part saw the light with the 2010 Die Schachtel "Null" edition in the ZeitComposers series (ZEITC 003CD). Within these pieces, Archettis thick sound-drones border on the edge of tonality as their many layers develop with a sort of "geological" pace. The work is in fact intended as musical research on the "interior" of sound, obtained by large masses of sound punctuated by seemingly minimalistic details. The mastery of Luigi Archetti conducts the listener deeply inside the musical event, while at the same time introducing a model, just like the traces of a gold seam in rocks, which the listener can follow and frequently re-encounter over the 140 minutes in which the music unfolds. The result is a trance-inducing sense of slow-motion and even stillness, alternating with subtle changes often obtained only by tiny, almost "invisible" variables. Null is a vast and profound place where perception is confronted with a stream of slow-developing, sometime "still" sound. Null II and Null III will certainly appeal to fans of Eliane Radigue, Thomas Köner and long and sustained drone electronic music in general." -Die Shcachtel.

After nearly a decade of false starts, multiple game plans veering off the rails, and a handful of shattered hopes and/or dreams, the odyssey is finally complete—the new Fusetron site is here.

This is the first phase of a multipart rollout that will span the next few months: the currently browsable stock includes miscellaneous new releases from the past 8+ months (we have a lot of catching up to do), plus approximately a third of our backstock. Note that we’ve reduced/slashed prices on many titles and will continue to do so in order to make room for new stock. We’ll also be expanding / tweaking / improving / debugging the site itself (for example, we still have work to do on the automated international postage system, not to mention the inevitable inventory discrepancies that come with transferring an ancient and massive database to a new system).

Over the next few months, as we take inventory, clean house, and delve into our storage, we will be uploading thousands of additional items, gradually, on a near-daily basis. This will include the majority of the LPs, as well as many titles, in all formats, once thought long-gone. Many currently “sold out” items are likely to resurface.

Finally, once our general backstock is up (probably in the next two or three months) we’ll begin making our extensive stockpile of rarities available online for the first time: tons of random out-of-print titles, "deadstock," warehouse finds, secondhand collectibles, etc., accumulated over the past few decades.

Frequent/returning customers will be getting early access to these items. Details to follow on how this will work (a priority mailing list? a 'frequent flyer'-like program?), but it will not be based on dollars spent. We want to reward those who consistently support us, especially in the discogs marketplace era (to those who show up trying to poach five copies of a one-off rarity, and nothing else, ever… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

So—we suggest you take some time to dig through the site—even we’ve been surprised by what’s been turning up, and there’s much more to come.
